President Biden is under scrutiny for providing health care administrative services to illegal migrants, potentially causing longer wait times for American veterans at VA facilities.

Sen. Tuberville introduced a bill to ban this action, highlighting the strain on VA resources due to the border crisis.

“[Biden’s] decided, OK, we’ve got to feed all these 10 million people we’ve let come across the border, we’ve got to house them, and we’ve got to give them health care,” Tuberville said.

The VA-FSC and ICE have a longstanding agreement to process claims for migrant medical care, but the surge in migrants has exacerbated a backlog of medical claims, affecting veterans and care providers.

“They’ve opened up care from the doctors in these [VA] community care systems. The lines now in the VA’s are getting longer. Our funds that are supposed to go to the veterans are going to these illegal immigrants that are coming across,” Tuberville said.

Tuberville hopes for bipartisan support for the bill, emphasizing the importance of addressing veterans’ needs.

“I think we’ve got a great opportunity to get this, maybe not to a vote, but at least where we discuss it on the floor, where the American people start to understand it,” Tuberville said.

“An election year is a great year to try to get some kind of bipartisan help on any type of bill, especially when it comes to the veterans. That means so much to us here in our country.”

He also criticized the Biden administration’s handling of border security.

“If we don’t get a guy like President Trump in office, heaven help us. I don’t know what we’re going to do,” he added.
